Happy Pi Day! Raidraptor - Force Strix is a Rank
4 Dark Winged Beast-type XYZ monster with 100 Atk
and 2000 Def. I like that this card can be made with
any 2 Level 4 monsters. I don't like how weak this
monster is. Even with its boosting effect, 100 Atk
isn't going to do anything, and 2000 Def doesn't
really make up for it.
So the first effect is an Atk and Def boosting
effect. This card gains 500 Atk for each other
Winged Beast monster you control. So that's a
maximum of 2000 Atk boost. 2100 Atk isn't worth the
investment. 4000 Def is cute, but walls in this game
don't last long with stats alone. The only useful
effect is to detach a material and search any Winged
Beast monster from your Deck to your hand.
Blackwings and Raidraptors love being Level 4 and
love Special Summoning themselves, so Force Strix
becomes really great in either deck. King of the
Feral Imps is universally run in just for a few
cards to search. Force Strix should be run to search
the majority of the monsters in your deck. Finally,
the more Force Strix monsters on the field, the more
often you can use this effect.
Score: 4/5 Keep on Flapping.
Art: 4/5 Mecha Owls are cool.
